Pete Wells, New York Times Food Critic gives Dirty French a lukewarm
2 Star Review .. Two Stars is not what you thrive for when you open a restaurant like this. You strive for 4 Stars, are happy if you get 3, not dejected with 2 but you really want at least 3 ..  So The Torrisi Boys Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi are at it again, with their latest venture Dirty French, and as the name would imply, it's a French Restaurant serving French Food, but French Food The Torris Boys way, and we here it's most Rich Torrisi at the helm on this one.
Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi actually met a  French Restaurant, Daniel Boulud's Daniel where they were both cooks, met, became friends, and the rest is New York Restauramt History as this dynamic due went on to creat the hugely popular Torrisi Italian Specialties, Parm, and uber hot Carbone, as well as an outpost of Parm at Citi Feild, and now Dirty French their first forray into the French Culinary World as owners.
Carbone and Torrisi though their frist few establsihments are Italian, the two have extensive training with French food in culinary school, at Daniel, and working abroad in French Restaurants.
